Your eyes are as good as rolled back!
What good is a friend is they don’t encourage you when they know you’re on to something? This is precisely what the Girls do for one another, and yet another reason to aspire to have friendships like these!
In The Case of the Libertine Bell [Season 7, Episode 2], Blanche is really hoping to score a promotion at work (and maybe a night with her boss, Kendall!) she volunteers to organize a murder mystery weekend for the museum employees in hopes that this will impress Kendall. At one point when the Girls all first arrive at the hotel, Kendall approaches Blanche and the Girls and compliments her on organizing the weekend. After a few flirty comments and head tilts, Kendall leaves and Blanche looks for confirmation from the Girls that he’s interested:
Blanche (smugly): I think I got to him, don’t you?
Dorothy: Your eyes are as good as rolled back.
These are the kind of things we need to hear from our good friends! These are the things we should be saying to our good friends! If we can’t be honest with our friends about their strengths, we may as well just throw in the towel now. This kind of candor, openness and acceptance is what real friendship is all about.
Take Dorothy’s lead, and incorporate this into your friendships daily! Nay, hourly! This kind of honesty is just what the world needs. And while you’re at it, watch the episode and get ready for some fantastic laughs, one-liners and Sophia’s little known tendency as a clepto.
In friendship and cheesecake,
